To the women who did not vote for failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, she has a message: How could you?
Within her upcoming book of excuses, which will explain all the reasons she lost to President Donald Trump in November 2016, Hillary casts shade on women who failed to do their duty and vote for her.
In her book, Clinton recounts a specific event after the election when a mother dragged her daughter over to publicly humiliate and admonish her for not voting in front of the former secretary of state. While the girl stood in, head “bowed in contrition,” Clinton says she wanted to “stare right in her eyes and say, ‘You didn’t vote? How could you not vote?!'”
“You abdicated your responsibility as a citizen at the worst possible time!” Clinton continues in her written thoughts. “And now you want me to make you feel better?”
Clinton points out that she, “of course,” didn’t say those words aloud.
She also talks about the Women’s March in D.C. and other cities across America in the book, describing the displays of womanly power as “bittersweet.” Apparently, she felt their enthusiasm contrasted with the lack of enthusiasm for her campaign.
She says she “couldn’t help but ask where those feelings of solidarity, outrage, and passion had been during the election.” Yet, on Twitter, she called the event “awe-inspiring.”
Clinton says in her book that women did support her and that since the election, women have been popping out of the woodwork to apologize.
“Since November, more than two dozen women — of all ages, but mostly in their twenties — had approached me in restaurants, theaters, and stores to apologize for not voting or not doing more to help my campaign,” she writes. “I responded with forced smiles and tight nods.”
As Breitbart points out, a majority of women did vote for Clinton, yet she did not win a majority of white women. White women largely voted for President Trump.
Clinton was so ready to break the proverbial “glass ceiling” and become the first female president, she planned her victory party at New York’s Javits Center, with its symbolic glass ceiling, on Election Night, iridescent shard-like confetti at the ready, poised to fall down on her supporters.
She was ultimately stung by the fact that not all women wanted her to be president.
“These people were looking for absolution that I just couldn’t give,” she wrote. “We all have to live with the consequences of our decisions.”
Many women voters who opted to elect Donald J. Trump would say that they are comfortable with theirs.
